of staff. joining me is kristen welker. >> i can tell you that jack lew has been the leading candidate for this spot. this is someone with experience in the white house and capitol hill. he served as an aide to former house speaker tip o'neal. director of the onb twice. and of course, the chief of staff to the white house, president obama, and has helped the president navigate tough policy issues including that fight over the fiscal cliff in which president obama what many consider a fight with republicans to increasing taxes on wealthier americans. so this is someone who president obama has a very good working relationship with. and, of course, this is a key moment. it's a critical moment to take over the spot as treasury secretary. because there are three big budget matters looming. of course, they're going to have to deal with the debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff and the all in the comes months. >> kristen, we look at the optics of this, the inner circle being all white men. what is the tone in washington especially since was the obama coalition that got obama in for a second term? >>

decided to nominate his current white house chief of staff, jack lew to secede timothy geithner. gloria, do we expect any serious opposition? >> well, there are going to be republicans who oppose him. senator sessions, the ranching republican on the budget committee came out and said he would not support jack lew. >> because? >> because of his testimony before the deficit committee and that the budget could be reduced. he said that's evidence that jack lew should not be confirmed. particularly on these fiscal matters, he did run the office of budget during the debt ceiling negotiations and i remember from covering those debt ceiling noish ags that republicans didn't like him very much, wolf. some of them said to me that jack lew kept moving the goal posts on them. yes, there will be opposition. for chuck hagel, no. i believe in the end jack lew will get confirmed. but i'll tell you this, the reason the white house put off the announcement of jack lew until tomorrow is because of the fiscal cliff. they didn't want it to get involved in the negotiations for the fiscal cliff. they felt tha

's not any one of these appointments you could look at and say well, that didn't make sense. jack lew makes sense at treasury. it made sense to replace peter orszag, gene spurling and then austin goolsby with allen krueger. you have to wonder, can it really be the case that this white house, after four very difficult years in which people are very tired, in which they're very burnt out, in which they've been worn down by endless battles with the republicans, and in which the sort of natural dynamics of group thinking in a tightly knit administration have taken over, can it really be the case if they can benefit from bringing in new people with new voices and new experiences and a fresh perspective? a lot of people i talk to, some of them former members of the administration, think at this point that it is a big problem, that at this point the president needs to get out of his comfort zone in some of these appointments particularly on the economics side and bring in folks with a new perspective. yet that's balanced by the fact that they don't think jack lew is a bad guy or going to be a bad
